Physics of Behavior
Friday, October 7, 2022
9100: Skylight Room
Open to the Public
A symposium on the physics of behavior organized by the Center for the Physics of Biological Function, a joint effort of the CUNY Graduate Center and Princeton University
Free; registration required
RSVP here to attend virtually or in person
The physics of behavior aims at a more complete characterization of complex animal movements under more naturalistic conditions. This symposium samples recent progress in this field. We will hear from theorists and experimentalists as they discuss how ideas from dynamical systems theory and statistical physics can create simple yet predictive models of animal behavior across scales, and how new methods, driven by advances in computer vision and deep learning, are bringing us toward precise and automated quantifications of behavior in diverse organisms and contexts.
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Quantifying behavior using deep learning
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Physics of behavior across scales:
from partial observations to long time scales through maximally predictive states

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
